I had a wonderful time at Bethel University, but the campus felt slightly unsafe at times. Walking alone was rare, even for me, and the baseball, hockey, as well as the football team all held reputations of sexual assault among the university. Not having experienced these things, I can only tell you what I have felt. I made lifelong friends here, though, in McDonald Hall. McDonald Hall was the best part of my experience as the all girls dorm held activities almost monthly!

The professors made it for easy to transform from in class classes to online. They knew it was a big transition, so they took their time with us and gave us more time to get work done. Because of them, I made the honor roll!
I've attended Bethel University for about 1 1/2 years. Great experience! Great Teachers! Great staff and School!
